Orchid Villa Apartments - Reader Reports & Opinion

I stayed at Orchid Villas' poolside cottage which was just as seen on their website, clean, tastefully decorated and with a fully equipped kitchen. The surroundings were lovely, with a number of different types of birds and butterflies dancing about the cottage and poolside area.
The real gem of this place is the owner. Very seldom will you find such a gracious, generous, entertaining and kind hostess. She was the icing on the proverbial cake for me boyfriend, friends and I during out time there.
I do not hesitate whatsoever in recommending Orchid Villas.

My husband and I spent our anniversary at Elaine's cottage June of this year. I couldn't have been more pleased. The cottage is just lovely, tastefully decorated, privately situated and totally self-contained. The pool is also right outside. The compound is gated and Ashanti and Milo (Elaine's Rotties)provide extra security.
Elaine's lovely garden attracts many varieties of birds allowing for great photo-ops.
Elaine is a wonderful hostess,she made us feel welcome even before we had arrived.We were touched by her generosity of spirit and we're glad to say we've gained a great friend.
We couldn't give this place anything but 5. We're sure to stay here whenever we visit again.
Thanks for everything Elaine, see you soon!

If i were to detail every thing there is to like about this place....there wouldnt be space for more reports.
i'll summarise this experience as EXTREMELY COMFORTABLE, RELAXING, SCENIC & tons of FUN ( for the adventurous persons of course :) Elaine is a very pleasant person, and always does her best to make sure you get that "home" feeling. She's always enquiring whether more could be done to ensure your comfort. I was most impressed with the swimming pool/garden very scenic...lovely trees around the pool. the facilities are very clean, and there were even some board games in the living room ( which we spent most of our time playing) if your looking for a peaceful, relaxing experience, here's your place! You dont have to venture far for fun!! she even has a pool table & beers for some entertainment. we didnt utilize the gym but it was available. An evening chat/lime with Elaine was the highlight of the entire experience....a must have when you visit.
keep up the good work Elaine. You will be hearing from me again soon.

The stay was really nice. Elaine was very friendly and helpful, she was able to suggest a few activities/entertainment for us.
Overall, it's relaxing and peaceful if that's what you're looking for.
What more could you really ask for???

I stayed at Orchid Villa at the end of March this year and I must say that my stay there was very comfortable, relaxing and entertaining. I stayed with my boyfriend from Jamaica and my sister and her spouse for four nights.
The host, Ms. Elaine, was extremely great at her job. From airport pickup and drop off, to any advice necessary, entertaining chats at some times and even medicine for my boyfriend when I give him the flu, Ms. Elaine was very friendly and helpful at all times.
The apartment was very clean. The patio was my favourite place to just rock on the chair and talk enjoying the cool Tobago breeze (very clean and crisp compared to Trinidad). Her dogs gave guard and even play at times. All the utensils needed for a full meal were there and the bedrooms and bathroom are satisfactorily spacious.
We didnt have time, nor were we in the mood to hit any beaches but they were conveniently close. Otherwise the inviting pool, privately set in the back yard was another option for us.
Overall we loved staying at Orchid Villa and would definitely visit again during another stay in Tobago.
